Handprints and footprints make some of our favorite Mother's Day crafts. Our kids are small for such a short time that it's nice to have a way to remember it. This Mother's Day craft is a simple paper craft that easily transforms their prints into a happy butterfly that is sure to make Mom smile. We used "Flappy Mother's Day!" as our card saying because the intended mom is a bit silly, but we also kicked around using "You make my heart soar" and "Thank you for helping me fly".

What you'll need:

  • Construction paper
  • Scissors
  • Crayons
  • Stickers
How to make your Hand and Mother's Day Handprint Butterfly Card:
  1. Trace your child's handprint onto construction paper and cut out four copies of it.
  2. Trace your child's footprint onto construction paper and cut it out.
  3. Glue the handprints to the footprint, two on each side to make wings.
  4. Glue the butterfly to a full sheet of construction paper.
  5. Add small rectangles for antennae.
  6. Have your child draw on a face and decorate the butterfly as they wish. We used stickers.
  7. Write "Flappy Mother's Day" on the card and have your child sign their name.
